Something for Everyone @ LUMC

Children First!


Come and find out
what all the excitement is about.


At Lancaster United Methodist Church (LUMC), we are committed to providing children of all ages with a safe and nurturing environment where they can effectively learn and grow in the Lord.

We believe that every little one who comes to us is special and we promise to give the loving care each one needs.

We partner with families to teach the Bible as an extension of what is modeled within the home and provide those children who do not know the Lord a visible example of God's L


MESSY CHURCH!  Starting in 2014

Plan now your dates for:
Vacation Bible School: July 21-25, 2014

Are you quiet or noisy, dozing or frolicking, fed by a bottle or jar? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you belong in our nursery. Maybe you would like to nap in a comfortable crib or play with toys, or even our staff? They are eager to play with you!

Come join us in the Children's Center, through the double wooden doors next to the playground. We are open for both services, just waiting for you. Be sure to remind Mom or Dad to bring you over!

Help us... help them
Students receive homework assignments and scriptures they can practice memorizing. Discuss the week's lesson with your children, the homework and their Bible verse. Sharing their Sunday School excitement reinforces these important lessons of Faith.



Sunday Classes
Every Sunday our students get a chance to see, hear, and explore the Bible lesson of the week. Through stories, games, role play, crafts, and Bible readings, children discover God's Word and the treasures 


Children begin Sundays in the Sanctuary to remind them that they are important members of our Family of Faith.

After Children's Time with Pastor Terry or a guest speaker, students between the ages of Preschool to 5th Grade are invited to join our teachers in the Children's Center. There they learn about God and our Lord Jesus in an environment designed to make them feel loved, protected, and valued.

Come join us as we learn about God's Love for each and every one of us!



Going the extra mile...
Go a step beyond and volunteer to be a teacher! Can you remember a teacher who touched your life? Would you like to pass on that same blessing to the lives of others? Our Christian Education curriculum makes teaching a pleasure.

LUMC Sunday School teachers often work together, making the learning experience enriching for adult and child alike.

We, as Christ's body, nurture one another in the Christian life and faith. God entrusts the children of our church to our care.

2015 Day Camps 

One of the most   important parts of a child’s life is their summertime. 
It’s a time filled with memories, new horizons and endless possibilities.

It’s a time that can be filled with the joy of friends, activities and a loving, creative God. 
Its memories like these that can last a lifetime.
We here at the Lancaster United Methodist Church and Footprints Christian Children’s Center
know the value of a deeply loving and personal environment
undergirded with the presence of a creative God who never gives up on us.

When you sign up your child for our Summer Day Camp,
you will know that every day will be a surprise wrapped in the love of Christ.

In addition to each weeks unique activities, we offer:

-Weekly Swimming
